Sometimes, a simple, easy-to-prep ingredient can be elevated by unique toppings and condiments. This summer, while you’re grilling up sausages and burgers, quickly prep your choice of the following gourmet, seasonal toppings. Avocados, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, garlic, and peaches shine during the summer and will add that extra wow-factor to your Sunday barbecue get-togethers.

We turned to sausage expert and trained chef Jack Silberstein, founder and CEO of Jack's Gourmet to share his favorite recipe ideas.
